Soliloquy in an International Cloister

Watch your step as Brother Lawrence takes you inside the monastery walls of a five hundred year-old international order. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll wish you had ignored your hormones and joined the monastery.

After Venice, I went to Spain for a similar three-day meeting. The meeting was held in Alcalá, not far from Madrid. After the meeting, I spent the night in one of our monasteries in Madrid. Not having been there before, I wasn't sure what to expect. It turned out to be a very nice place—simple, but clean and comfortable. I snapped the accompanying photograph just outside the door of the monastery. The white building seen behind the trees in the background is the Prado Museum. You are probably wondering the same thing I did: "How did the Prado get such a prized location next to our monastery?"
